Hello there! :3 This little piece here was A LOT of work, because of all of the characters and (OMIGOSH) a BACKGROUND!
I was listening to Center of the Sun by Conjure One (www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rv_aQR…
if you want a listen) and this picture of Octavia came popped into my head.
Indeed, street performers probably had seen a lot of things and I wonder how could they bear to see such hate? However, when playing music, there's this fire about performing that you cannot feel anywhere else. The fire engulfs the performer and gives off a feeling of invincibility. There are a few people that understand the feeling and the depth these performers want to share with the world, and there are many who could not care less. However, the few that do appreciate it, it makes all of the cruelty and hard work worth it. :3
There's a lot of "old art" elements in this piece, I hope some people can find them. X3
She will be available as a print starting at Brony Con. :3
Enjoy the picture!
